Like I mentioned earlier, buy them for as cheap as you can find and if you don't like them, sell them for what you bought them for. You may have to eat the shipping charges, but that's fair enough for getting an extended demo of a headphone, don't you think?

Goes without saying. But sometimes bad executed animations etc can be such a party pooper....

That's true, I guess. Maybe someday....

 


Sorry, but why am I watching Fate/Stay Night first?
Wouldn't it be smarter to watch Fate/Zero first because it's a) the prequel and b) a better way for me to find out if I'm even interested in the whole Fate/blabla business?

SnK has been added to Netflix!

 

It has subs AND IS IN HD!

 

If you have a Netflix account and want to watch SnK, please do so instead.

 

There is no reason not to now since it is in HD and has subs. 

 

This helps support the anime industry actually and helps bring more anime to Netflix.

Finally, effing finished installing Cyanogenmod on my phone.

I encountered lots of problems from installing to restoring contacts and messages. I guess I really need to back up more often. Manual back up by pulling the contact database is such a pain.

 

I really need to catch up to Nagi no Asukara.

VortexBlast, Google keeps my contact info so that makes it easy whenever I update and then I just install the apps I want, and it's easy since I only need music+netflix+candy crush+Facebook haha

Lol, I would consider that a good thing! Then you won't be tempted to try out different amps and such and waste more money!

Titanium Backup. ;)

 

I just installed CM11 on my Nexus 4 the other day and after waiting about an hour, all 100 of my apps, SMSes, call logs, contacts and everything else were back on my phone.

They are officially ONA's but ....to be perfectly fair, while they are Net Animations, they are direct continuation of the main season and is for the most part, considered part of the Season 2. They just couldn't fit it in with the main season due to seasonal TV airing times...and some other factors.

Wake Up Girls is doing something similar to what Oreimo did.

 

In the sense that it had too much for the 11-13 ep seasonal air time constraint, but not enough, (or budget or other reasons) for 24 episodes for two seasons.

 

So they released a Movie at the same time as the anime airing. The movie is a prequel to the anime that just got released and should be watched first to introduce a lot of 'backstory' to the anime. Another smart way to do things.

Dat ending indeed....

Did not like it at all. Made little to no sense. Unrational as all hell.
 


I watched three episodes of Fate/stay night so far and I really don't feel the magic (olololol).
Screw this, I'll take a look at Fate/Zero now.

I know that, it's just that I made the mistake to turn off syncing my contacts with Google and not backing up regularly. Some was restored but recently added contacts didn't sync to my account.

 

Anyway, I received (well 3 days ago) my Tachikawa T-36W pen holder.

I still need to get used inking with it but the result looks very good.

-_-

 

Why not just watch the main anime? Part of F/Z's 'magic' is in watching its charactes and then going WTF HOLY SCHIIT I REMEMBER THAT FROM FSN. 

F/Z uses that a lot in its show.

 

It made no sense because it wasn't the true true canon ending. It was canon in a sense, but the author has publically said that that ending was the MOST that could be done on public TV station they were using. The TV station literally told the oreimo author that what the author wanted for an ending would not fly.

 

The author has shown interest in continuing the true ending he/she wants through another fashion


KIIITTTTAAAAAAA

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's here! It's here!

 

I opened my mail box today and saw two envelope packages from Germany(I wasn't sure if Germany or Netherlands until I saw Frankfurt on it) but yeah. I was like WTF? Did Rikkun or TYG? But then was like..impossibru, they don't know my address? 

 

Also...did it go through France? What's with the French then?

 

 

But then I opened it up...and KIIIITTAAAAA! It's here! The stuff I ordered last month is here! With size comparison next to a mountain dew can.

 

 

 

I ordered these 3 (computer or vehicle) stickers to the cost of $10 total last month. I thought it was shipping from USA :/ oh well. 

 

I've had my laptop for a few years now. Never put any stickers on it. Until now ..... :D YESSSS!!

 

ITS HERE! **** YEAH!

Well maybe I'll get the same effect but in reverse if I decide to watch FSN after it? :3
Right now I'm not even sure if I'm that interested in the Fate series at all....I just wanted to check it out because it got so many glowing reviews on MAL.
Magicians, the Holy Grail, highschool kids that are secretly super cool warrior persons....it sounds so cheesy :(


That is BS.
Why is Oreimo not allowed to have its "true" ending if other shows like Imouto something something can show stupidly censored lesbian sex and masturbation on TV?


Oh and nice stickers you got there. Not bad for ten bucks.
I'm rather happy that I don't live in Frankfurt....city with the highest crime rate in Germany.
maybe because it is also the financial center of the country :P

C.C.:

If I grant you power, could you go on? I propose a deal—in exchange for this power, you must agree to make my one wish come true. Accept this contract, and you accept its conditions. While living in the world of humans, you will live unlike any other: a different providence, a different time, a different life. The Power of the King will condemn you to a life of solitude. Are you prepared for this?

 

Panda: 

Hell-z to the yes!

I'm extremely lukewarm with stuff from Type-Moon(Game STudio of FSN and F/Z and Kara no Kyoukai) and Ufotable(Animation STudio for F/Z and Kara no Kyoukai). (Studio Deen animated FSN 2006, but Ufotable will get FSN 2014)

 

I find that while its not so glowing as the reviews seem. I also realize why people like it and why the reviews are so high. It's because they do it so fricking well. The entire story, cast, and plot are tight as ****. From the action, to the execution, its entertaining. IT's not special special with plot twists or anything(although it does have a few), its more so an anime series that serves as the 'benchmark' that many anime still can't reach.

 

It's like the Superman or Batman comics. Nothing too interesting today, but in its time when it came out, AND to this day. It serves as a benchmark quality series that still does MANY things right, and serves as a classic.

 

The TV Studios were cited for the reason for Oreimo itself and the time slot. Timeslot + TV studio terms were big problems for Oreimo. A lot of the really really 'heavy' imo shows show later than Oreimo did and was slated for. 

 

It may also play into societal values. While the regular stupid moe imo shows were heavy with near pron. They were also stupid and 'unbelievable'. They generally also didn't go full incest and choose for safe routes at the end if you actually watch.

 

Oreimo while still not believable was set with a more serious and 'legit' tone. The character was rebellious like many teens in that time, and the anime spent a lot of time building up character values, societal expectations, and their lives. This stuff is a bigger danger to Japanese societal values than the schittty imo LN adaptations. And keep in mind the time slot.
